TEI Celebrates at the 40th Annual Denver Film Festival
Posted on November 16, 2017
Takeda Entertainment is celebrating winning an award along with three sold-out screenings at the Denver Film Festival for its latest film “The Outsider.”
“I’m still a little overwhelmed at the response,” said writer-director Scott Takeda. “Our first screening sold out within hours, and we’ve been covered by Rocky Mountain PBS and Denver Business Journal. And now we find out we’re first runner up to a film that will likely be nominated for an Oscar in 2019.”
303 Magazine released the winners of the 40th Annual Denver Film Festival. The jury singled out “The Outsider” as one of three finalists for the “True Grit” Award (given to the best Colorado film) and gave it a Special Jury Recognition. The winning film is a feature-length documentary that won LA Film Festival and has Oscar-nominated and winning producers.
“I’m most excited that our film seems to be affecting people,” said producer Lori Kay Allred. “I just talked with festival founder Ron Henderson at the filmmaker lounge, and he told me how much he enjoyed our film.”
The cast and producers of “The Outsider” also walked the red carpet during the festival. Lead actress Kate Cook flew in from Los Angeles along with fellow cast member Mike Ostroski who found an opening in his schedule between shoots for ABC’s “Black-ish” and his recurring role on Nickelodeon’s “Henry Danger.” They joined Takeda, Allred and producer Brock Sherman, along with other LA dignitaries.
